Issues | Cal Parks

No matter what is happening in Sacramento, we always make sure parks have a seat at the table. Parks generate revenue for California, protect open space, help fight climate change, and create health, recreational, and educational opportunities for people throughout the entire state. We continuously fight for parks because the benefits they provide are necessary for the well-being of all Californians. 

Our team is active in the Capitol and has a finger on the pulse of what is important to policymakers every year. We work to create legislative champions to protect and preserve state parks. 

The six goals of the organization guide our policy and political leadership activities, as well as in its partnerships, research efforts, and working with the media and the public, including:  

  • Climate Resiliency 

  • Equitable Access 

  • Park Funding 

  • Protecting Wildlife and Nature 

  • Park Experiences 

  • Honoring History and Culture
